1992 Chevrolet LUV from Indonesia

Post by ubs_lover »

Hi I'm Andy from Indonesia.
I'm a big fan of Trooper and P'Up. I've been here from 2009 with some P'Up project that never finished :roll:

Now I came with specific Indonesian market 1992 Chevrolet LUV.

Yes it's a P'Up.
What makes it Indonesian Market is because the frame and drivetrain are from 1992 1st Gen Trooper with 2.3L (similar to late 1987 US spec Trooper)
or you can say that it's a 1987 P'Up body with 1988 PickUp drivetrain and frame.

The story is back in 1990s when Caltex need a 4x4 pickup. But when Caltex came to GM Dealer what they have is a 2.3L 4x4 1st Gen Trooper and a 2.2L Diesel 4x2 LUV. So GM dealer came up with idea of switching the body.
Caltex's LUV

Here's some brochures for that 4x4 P'Up and the least popular 4x2 Chevrolet Stallion (with Trooper body)

It looks awesome on the first photo with big tires. I am thinking about switching my tires too to a larger ones.

Hi Andy, I hope you're still around. I happened upon a website where there are at 6 brand new glow plug dropping resistors for sale, there in Indonesia, and I want to buy all 6, pay for shipping one time, and have them all here for others who may also need one. These are still factory-sealed in the plastic packaging. May I impose on you to arrange contact with this store owner so I can buy these?

Thanks and take care.
